Soccer it to me

This week won’t go down in history as a good one for new releases, with only a trio of titles out – Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom and NFL Tour on Xbox 360 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 on DS. Pity we aren’t all living in Japan – Super Smash Bros. Brawl is causing quite a commotion over there.

The two Xbox Kingdom Under Fire games were likeable enough, but review scores suggest that this 360 iteration is a bit tedious with too many dull dungeons. GameRankings currently doesn’t have a single review of Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 listed which is a bit worrying while EA’s NFL Tour has had some shocking reviews – Eurogamer gave it a 3/10.

Looks like there are a few reasons to open your wallet (or purse) next week though – Devil May Cry 4 and Turok should be coming to both the 360 and PS3, with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games on DS and Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 for the Wii. Only one of those games is actually any good though.
